For the next release of Bio7 I implemented a first simple debugging GUI (Graphical User Interface) for R scripts. For the debugging process a change from Rserve to an available Java R console connection in Bio7 is necessary (with Rserve alone a debugging interface wouldn’t be possible).
Both connections runs in the same process and all objects will be preserved if you switch from one connection to another (shutting down RServe or start R in the console).
Technically in the next version of Bio7 Rserve is started by default within a native Java R connection!
Still there is some work and testing to do but here is a short video about the new debugging interface:
